How to improve your chances to be interviewed?

I'm currently applying for jobs and I notice my resume is nothing interesting that would catch the attention of interviewers. Reason being that I've always been working in small sized firms and there's no company in my resume that is recognizable in my industry (banking & finance). I'm a smart guy whom almost everyone who works with tells me so. Even my current abusive boss thinks so (no cigar for guessing why I want to leave). Qualification wise, I don't have an MBA but do have some quite decent professional qualification. I know if I can get an interview, my success rate of getting a job would be very high. I'm trying to figure out how to get bigger firms to notice me, short of starting from the bottom of the ladder.
